Hindus consider the number 108 as the holy number. They believe in chanting God’s name 108 times and have 108 beads on their prayer threads.
108 being a sacred number, it also hold mathematical significance such as
The ancients didn’t know all of the following, but by an incredible “coincidence” ,
the distance between the Earth and the Sun is 108 times the Sun’s diameter,
the distance between the Earth and the Moon is 108 times the Moon’s diameter and also
the diameter of the Sun is 108 times that of the Earth.
Just by coincidence, the radius of the Moon is 108 miles
So either the technology was so advanced that the Indian people were able to measure this things so accurately or this is just a coincidence as the west thinks it is..
